About this Item

4p. No copies in OCLC. A pamphlet done by hand, printed on rag paper, illustrated with a linoleum block of Johannes Gutenberg. The initial letter is missal type similar to that used in the Gutenberg Bible by an admirer of the printing art [signed, Nolie Mumey]. This address given to the Psychological Club at the University of Denver in 1931. Twenty years later Carl Wheat's Biblio-Lament follows this idea in a special publication for the Roxburghe and Zamorano Clubs. While Carl Wheat's item is scarce this is apparently the only known surviving copy. Bookseller Inventory # 016530
